What makes ours different?  Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm).  Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk.  It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet.  Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation.  Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.

A MEDICAL TESTIM0NIAL:  We received this letter from a respected Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon:

 I am an avid runner and triathlete and I recently discovered your Skin Cooler products, of which I'm a huge fan.  I have been wearing them for a few months now and couldn't be happier.  I am a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon.   Every patient I see is plagued by basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma.  I recommend your products to my active patients on a daily basis.  It allows them to continue their active lifestyle while protecting themselves from the sun. I find your product to be far superior to all other cooling and sun protective lines.  I truly appreciate your efforts and innovations. 

Note: No garment should ever be a substitute so we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these, and all, products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

Great quality and confort

I am very happy with the skin cooler tri top. The fit is great, I am 5'9" and 148 pounds and bought medium size. I forgot I was wearing a top and the fabric kept me cool during the workout. I run with it during my brick training and pair it with the forza tri short. I recommend this top.

Very comfortable

I have worn skin cooler tri tops for 3 seasons. All versions have been great. The latest version is feels lighter in weight. Great fitting, well made garment. Desoto customer service is excellent.

Perfect at Ironman Texas

Already had a De Soto tri top that I really liked, but decided to upgrade to Skin Cooler tri top for Texas heat and humidity. Saw someone else at IMTX in this tri top, in fact. Best decision I could have made. Planning to get the arm coolers and cap next. I also wore the 400-mile bike shorts at IMTX from swim (wetsuit), bike AND run -- perfect. Comfortable, zero chafing, very breathable. Excellent investment. I'm a type 1 diabetic so I HAVE to carry quite a bit of fuel with me -- if my blood sugar drops best case I lose 15 minutes, worst case is seizures and a medical DNF followed by ER trip -- and between the jersey pockets and bike short pockets, I had everything I needed. True peace of mind.

Another great product

I wear desoto tri gear, exclusively. Another great product in a long line.
